KUALA LUMPUR: The 30,000 students at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) will be able to  enjoy high-speed WiFi services following a tie-up with Maxis.

Maxis said on Monday this collaboration would enable UKM’s 13 campuses nationwide to be connected via Maxis’ WiFi services. 

In a joint statement issued on Monday, the UKM student community can enjoy an “Always-On” and “Worry Free” experience anytime, anywhere on Maxis' 4G LTE network.

In addition to the WiFi in campus, selected UKM buses that ply the Bangi campus route have also been fitted with free WiFi on board.

UKM vice chancellor Prof Tan Sri  Noor Azlan Ghazali said the university was very determined to produce a digital generation where everyone embraces the right ICT technologies in all activities such as research, teaching and learning as well as community and industry networks. 

This collaboration with Maxis certainly plays a key role in enhancing UKM's desire through engagement in the six areas of UKM's KRA to mold the new Malaysian generation in the digital era, said Noor Azlan.

Maxis’ head of enterprise product Shanti Jusnita Johari, said the collaboration with UKM showed “we are the right partner as we ourselves are going through digitalisation”. 

“At Maxis, we recognise that education is a critical sector where access to communications and advanced technology can play a vital role in driving excellence. 

“By providing connectivity to the campus community, we are helping students and faculty members stay connected wherever they may be,” she said.

This collaboration also extends to student development initiatives such as internship opportunities with Maxis, student entrepreneurship programmes, leadership talks by senior management of Maxis, among others.
